We're Back....

....and its nice to be home. We got back yesterday evening, all of us super tired. It was a lot of fun. We got to meet new people, make more memories, and learn lessons. Dad, Rayni and I went down there along with Mr. Cooper, Jessica Cooper, Aaron Campbell, Jonathan Grindall, and Jacob and Justin White. It started out with an 8 1/2 hour car ride, then three days of tournament then the ride back.

Rayni and I competed in debate last year along with speech, and this year we aren't participating in the debate side. Lets just say we had a lot more free time, which was pretty weird but also pretty fun as we had more time to relax and talk. We had three rounds of speech on both Thursday and Friday, then Saturday was just semi-finals and final rounds. I think it was worth it going.

Anyways, that is just thought I would write a quick note. See you all later!!!




  1. Wow! That sounds so fun. So... how did you guys do? What places did you get? What was the greatest part of the trip? (I need details here!) :) haha, well, love you! Glad you were blessed.

  2. Haha, it was a blast, although it was an odd tournament! I ended up breaking in Apolo to semis and got 11th, and to finals in IO and got 2nd (that was a huge surprise because I thought I hadn't done that well). Rayni didn't break in any of her events (even though I thought she should have...I guess I am biased though). And Jessica broke in all 4 of her events and got to finals in her persuasive.
    Oooh, thats a hard question. My favorite part I think would have to be the late night talks that we had and just the odd crazy times through out the tournament where we had lost our minds. Hahaha

  3. Oh my goodness congratulations!!!! 2nd is fantastic! And 11th in apologetics is really great too! Well, I'm absolutely sure Rayni will break at the next tournament. I'm glad you had a great time. I miss you! Let's talk soon.
